Magic System will be celebrating 20 years of success on stage at the Henry Le Bœuf Hall during the 2018 Afropolitan Festival, Brussels.
Born in Anoumabo, a working class district of Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire, A’Salfo, Manadja, Goudé and Tino, the four current members of Magic System, forged were friends long before they knew any success. While retaining its roots in zouglou, the popular music of the Côte d’Ivoire, their music mixes a range of influences, from rap to raï and including RnB, electro and pop.
Their new album Ya Foye, celebrating 20 years of Magic System, also marks a new departure: among the hits for the clubs, there are songs calling for people to come together, messages of hope and appeals to preserve the planet.
20 years after first meeting, Magic System are still driven by an incredible energy that enables their music to cross borders, generations and cultures in an infectious spirit of enthusiasm.
